Wal-Mart pulls eggs from stores in China over melamine scare
                                  

 

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) is pulling a major brand of eggs from its stores in China as a precaution after the chemical melamine was detected in eggs in Hong Kong, a spokeswoman said Tuesday (October 29).

 

Wal-Mart has begun removing Kekeda brand eggs, produced by Hanwei Group, from its Chinese stores, said Mu Mingming, a spokeswoman at the company's national headquarters in Shenzhen.

 

"Over the past few days, we pulled this brand of eggs off shelves in all our outlets in China," Mu said.

 

Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, made the decision after Hong Kong authorities announced over the weekend that melamine had been detected in Kekeda eggs.
